Where to get boots fixed up?

Thumbnail image for boots with snow on themKobe asks via Facebook:

Does anyone know a good place to take leather boots that are scuffed/scraped and need to be fixed up? I don't trust myself on this one.

We had a related question -- about getting boots re-soled -- a few years back. The answers there might be helpful. But we're guessing the number of places that can give a pair of boots a good fixup exceeds the number of places that could do a whole re-soling. (Or maybe not. That's why it's good to ask.)

Boot season is here. So, got a suggestion for Kobe? Please share!

Lev's Shoe & Leather Repair

This is handsdown the most skilled leather repair shop I've ever been to. Lev himself does as the work (as far as I understand). The hours are odd and they may not take plastic (I always pay cash so I'm not sure) but they do fantastic work.

The Delmar Bootery in Stuyvesant Plaza is pretty good. I've taken many dress shoes there to be repaired and polished.

Elio's shoe repair. The man is a genius and the prices are reasonable. I cannot recommend him enough.

Second and third the recommendation of Delmar Bootery at Stuyvesant Plaza. Been a customer for over 25 years - since they were actually in Delmar. Never less than 100% satisfied.

If you have Red Wings there is a Red Wings store in Clifton Park Center

I have been to Lev's and Delmar Bootery and highly recommend both.

I want to get shoes completely resoled which I don't think Lev's or Bootery will do. I know Delmar Bootery won't because they told me they can't fix the shoes at this point. Does anyone have recommendations for a cobbler or someone who may be able to save my favorite flats from the dump?

Thanks!

I found Trevin Peterson through an All Over Albany recommendation about 2 years ago. ... His quotes were better detailed than other contractors. This spring, the job scope actually grew considerably since I decided this contractor was capable of replaceing 40 year old deteriorating retaining walls with architectural block here at my hillside home, along with an old side entrance deck supported by rotting cantilevered joists. Everything came out looking very professionally well done. He is partnered now with a master carpenter Chris Urba, and the company is now called Built By Design ... They will not be your cheapest quote, but if you want expert work they have the experience.
